Chelsea chief, Marina Granovskaia have reportedly rejected Olivier Giroud’s demands for a two-year contract extension.

Giroud had one foot out of the Chelsea doors this January but was held back in the final moments. Frank Lampard was unable to track down a suitable replacement for the Frenchman, forcing him to stay the remainder of his contract. Giroud had plans of reuniting with former boss, Antonio Conte at Inter Milan to further his chances of getting picked up for the European Championship squad.

Didier Deschamps has once again echoed in the striker’s ears to either find more playing time or face the chop this summer. Luckily for Giroud, the Euros have been postponed to 2021, giving him one more year to impress. After Giroud’s 2 goals in 3 Premier League starts this year, Lampard was forced to reconsider the forward’s Chelsea future.

Extension talks came into play instead of a summer goodbye. Giroud, 33 is well aware of Chelsea’s policy of only offering a year-long extension to veterans. The Frenchman still demanded for two years given how the Blues offered David Luiz the same last summer. Unfortunately, Marina Granovskaia does not believe the former Arsenal man is worth straying too far away from club policy.
